Nana's Butter Cream
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 1 c. milk
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Cook flour and milk on stove, stirring constantly until a gravy forms. Allow gravy to cool, really cool. Beat sugar, butter and vanilla; add gravy and continue to beat. Mixture may appear to separate. Do not give up keep beating.
- substitute any flavor of extract for the vanilla. I love almond and orange. Ideally the extract should be pure and clear.
- This can be made with white crisco for a snow white appearance.
- Toss a couple of soft bananas into a cake mix (prepared according to package), frost with almond flavored buttercream.
